Have stayed at the Breakers for a week+ for well over a decade. The hotel's location is great. The rooms are comfortable, though the beds and decor could do with some updating. If you're looking for a peaceful week away, or on a business trip, I highly recommend the Breakers!

First visit, very positive experience. The actual room was spotless, very spacious with a good bed plus fold-out couch, gas fireplace, and kitchenette. The bathroom, importantly, was also pristine, and as seems to be current custom, came provided with lots of towels but only one tiny bar of soap. There's free Wifi, and a large collection of DVDs to borrow.... More

Very clean and comfortable. Right on the beach. Short walk to the downtown area with lots of great shopping and food. Beautiful grounds with chairs, picnic tables, and bbqs. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Excellent experience overall. Fantastic location, right on the beach. Lots of amenities. Clean comfortable room. Friendly, accommodating staff. Good price. Kitchenette even includes dishes and cutlery. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This is a lovely resort motel, clean and secure. The rooms are pretty and spotless. Only one minor issue-no hairdryer in the room. Otherwise an excellent choice for the business traveller. Cobourg is a lovely town with everything one could need while "on the road". I will gladly return to this restful oasis.

I stayed with my husband at the Breakers on the Lake during the Christmas Break for 8 days, and it was amazing, yet again! We try and stay every year while seeing my parents during the holidays, and this place never disappoints. We requested the same room as last year, and didn't receive any problems. My in-laws stayed in one... More

I can see why the Breakers is popular - the location is wonderful and the rooms are spacious and spotless. The kitchenette in our room was well stocked and the gas fireplace was a welcome surprise after our travels through a snow storm. The towels were plentiful and fluffy but my husband lamented the lack of quality soap and any... More

I've never felt so welcomed. Even had my dog with me - and the lake is right there! The office is quite small but efficient. The owners are wonderful people, although not always there. Go walking on the beach - right next to Cobourg's main beach, and Victoria Park. Cobourg is "The Feel Good Town"!! Oh, Oh; it wasn't a... More

The Breakers is a clean, reasonably priced, well-maintained property just steps from Lake Ontario. We had a basic room with two double beds and a kitchenette. The water pressure in the shower could have been better but otherwise we were very pleased and look forward to a return visit. Hopefully, next time, we'll be able to book a room with... More

Stayed with my husband last year on New Years 2014 while visiting my parents, we stayed in a room number 7 or 10, and we've already just made plans again for this upcoming year, so excited! The owners are awesome, and very helpful... the hotel/motel has an amazing view of the fireworks on New Years Eve that Cobourg puts on... More
